Rate this:
Read any newspaper or listen to tv and radio and the chances are that one?s attention will be drawn to statements by politicians or economists or business executives ? sometimes all three ? that our future economic well-being depends on more growth. This traditional view of the ?growth? economy, believing that it can continue with impunity to feed on Earth?s natural capital instead of living on the interest, admits no recognition of other views. This economic destitution ? responsible mainly for the mass poverty of a fifth of the world?s population leading to malnutrition, disease and death, not least among children ? is here briefly examined. ?Quite simply,? writes Dr John Peet, ?in the long term, economic growth as currently understood is unsustainable.?
